ViperROM is pretty good. I used it for awhile. But the updater doesn't work the way you think it does. It downloads the new version of the ROM and flashes it for you, it's not like applying windows updates where you only install what you need to update.

Which ROM would you suggest? I want something stable with a decent amount of tweaks with improved battery life. Overclocking isn't super important to me

That was what I figured the updater did. It is just nice to be able to update without having to flash every time it has an update

ViperROM or MeanROM would be my suggestion. For being able to tweak it, I'd suggest Viper over Mean, because MeanROM gets updated every 3 days or so and anything you tweak will have to be re-tweaked and if you apply a theme, you could defeat the changes the update did.

If you still want to use the full Android SDK (as I've changed my guide to use Mini SDK), here is how you install it (for Windows OSes only):

This guide will assume you're running Windows XP or later. But, what software you download and what directory the Android SDK will install itself into will depend upon if you have a 32-bit or 64-Bit version of Windows. How do you tell? Right click on My Computer, or open your Start Menu and right click on My Computer (or 'Computer' as Win 7 refers to it) and click on Properties. In the middle of the page, it will tell you if you're running a 32-Bit or 64-Bit version of windows.

First, you need to download a lot of software. So here are the download links:

1) The Java Development Kit (JDK) - Install this first, the Android SDK will not let you continue if it does not detect a JDK.

a) JDK for Windows 32-Bit systems
b) JDK for Windows 64-Bit systems

2) Android SDK Installer

Now, how to configure the Android SDK. After installing the Android SDK, it'll prompt you to start the SDK Manager. Yes, you want to start it. Check 'Tools' at the top. Also check Android 2.3.3 (API 10) and then Install XX packages. Mine said 27 packages, yours may be different. Also, ignore that it's calling it Android 2.3.3 and you're likely on Android 2.3.4. Android 2.3.4 uses the same APIs as Android 2.3.3, so it's fine. That will take a little bit to download and install. Once it is done, you can use fastboot and ADB.

*Note, now that we're on Android 4.0, you can use the Android 4.0 API instead of the Android 2.3.3 API. I don't think either are truly necessary, but it wouldn't hurt to grab both or none of them.

If you have the full Android SDK and 32-Bit Windows, your platform-tools directory will be here:
Code:
cd C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
If you have the full Android SDK and 64-Bit Windows, your platform-tools directory will be here:
Code:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools

@OP. Thank you.

Great guide. Flawless.

I had one small issue where after it was supposed to reboot by itself to the unlocked bootloader, it instead booted right to stock homescreen. I'm not sure why it happened, and I was freaking out because I couldn't boot into the bootloader, but then I realized it had defaulted back to "fastboot" on.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll include that into my guide. I never actually did the HTC unlock method, so I didn't know if it rebooted to the bootloader or to Android.

Does the android app, ROM Manager, work at all for this phone? Mainly with it's install ROM feature that allows you to install ROMs on the fly more or less.

ROM Manager only works if you're S-OFF. If you unlocked with HTC dev, then you can't use ROM Manager.

However, you can use 4EXTRecovery. It has a ROM Manager like program and works with S-OFF and S-ON devices. I highly recommend it.

Cool. Thanks for the quick reply. Follow up question for it, are you able to use that app and by-pass step 7 by chance or should we get TWRP flashed first before we put any other mods on?

Actually a question regarding step 7. I'm ready to flash the new ROM now but when I went into shooter it gave me 3 other options:
../
META-INF/
system/

I'm thinking its the META-INF bit but not 100%.

No, for the first flash, you need to use TWRP. Just because 4EXT can't install without having SuperUser. It's a pain, but the guys who made 4EXT didn't make it so you could download the recovery separately.

Umm...where did you go into 'shooter'? Are you using TWRP?

Yup I went into shooter through the ROMS folder I created where I put the .img file at. Once in there I selected shooter then it gave me those extra options.


I'm going to try redownloading the file and re-uploading it to the SD card. (hopefully that'll do it since it doesn't seem like I should be getting those extra options)

Ah nvm I think I just figured out what I did wrong. I didn't think of it but I unzipped the file and uploaded it to the SD card. Right now I'm simply re-downloading the ROM and keeping it in .zip format then going into the mount menu to reupload it to the SD card.

Yup that was the issue and got everything fixed and now its working like it should. Great guide, thanks for it! =D

Hi guys -

went to root my wife's phone tonight and, strangely enough, after putting in the HTC Unlock code, the phone rebooted and appeared to have been factory reset.

I checked on the EVO3D IRC channel and they stated that the HTC unlock wipes the data. It might be a good idea to update the instructions to change the order so that the uninitiated don't make the same mistake.

Thanks for the instructions nevertheless!

Then your not rooted, go back the the chart and follow the steps again, you must of missed something

I also didn't ask you to download and install simply wanted to know if it was there, if it was then you would of most likely been rooted

It should have rebooted, but saying locked at the top is the important thing. I would recommend you try to move on and see what happens. If you run into problems, check the section labeled "If you're still locked" or just perform: http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/539091-hboot-1-5-firmware-upgrade-guide.html

Try getting the identity token again and submit it back to HTC dev. Something must be screwed up with the code.

Hey jero, nice guide.
But in that Step 1, where you link to HTC Sync, you should update the link to
http://dl4.htc.com/managed-assets/support/software/htc-sync/htc_sync_setup_3.2.20.exe

You're a couple versions behind.
Thanks

Hi,
Thank you very much for the guide, I've followed it to the end but I've ran into a problem. I've loaded the superuser stock rom to my sd card but when I try to install it, the zip doesn't show up in my list of files.

My phone says that I am unlocked in the HBOOT menu but It the zip just doesn't show up. Anyone had this problem before?

Have you gone into recovery, yet? You can't install the file from the bootloader menu.

Yes, Ive gone into recovery (revolutionary cwm shows up) > install zip from sd card > choose zip from sd card.

I then just get a list of folders on my sd card but no zip file is there, the file is definitely on the sd card but just doesn't show up.

Thanks for your fast reply

This has actually been discussed a bit in the Evo V section EVO V 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums

If you flash a Sprint Evo 3D ROM on an Evo V, you only lose MMS capabilities. And the few devs that the Evo V has currently are trying to get permission to port a few of the popular Sprint ROMs over to the Evo V so they can fix the MMS problem.

This is great, but I get stuck when trying the HTCdev unlock bootloader. I click to start the thing and nothing happens. There is an asterisk next to Evo 3D indicating I need to update my bootloader.? I am in FASTBOOT USB in the process and it show my bootloader as 1.50.0000

Help. What do I need to do?

Do not copy the "<<<< Identifier Token End >>>>" line and try that.

I do not have a GSM device, so I have no idea if this works, but there's a really good guide on XDA:

xda-developers - View Single Post - [How To] Downgrade and Unlock and S-OFF "Almost" Every GSM EVO 3D Out There !!!

I don't get far enough to even paste that token anywhere. I get stuck when I try to run the unlock bootloader at http://htcdev.com/bootloader/. It won't execute on my home PC with Windows 7 or my work PC with Windows XP. I click the button and nothing happens. I contacted them and we'll see what they say.

It seems to be a browser issue. At home I was using Firefox. At work I was trying Chrome. I switched to IE8 and it is working so far.

You would have to flash ROMs using fastboot. It's also more of a pain to update firmware files (if you get them) because you'll have to flash the RUU. But besides that, you don't have to.

Thank you for making this guide, jerofld. But I am having a problem with step 5. When I try to flash TWRP, I get this message:

Code:
C:\sdk-tools>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
     sending 'recovery' (7 KB)... OKAY [  0.221s]
            writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: image error! (BootMagic check fail))
finished. total time: 0.225s
Not sure what I have to do to fix this, I'm pretty new at rooting. Thanks!

Are you hiding your extensions in Windows? Check in Folder Options in Control Panel. In the View tab, I think. Sometimes people don't see them by default. So they accidentally name the file recovery.img.img. If so, remove one of the .img's. If that doesn't work, use the RUU flashing guide to flash the RUU and try re-rooting, again.
